One of the key parts of the outreach programme are the loan and reminiscence boxes. These are used in outreach workshops with a range of groups. These can include reminiscence sessions in care homes and workshops in schools and with young people’s groups. I am currently looking for some new objects to be used for handling and wondered if anyone out there had items they would like to donate?
In particular I am looking for the following:
• Old toys and games
• Sports items related to Edinburgh (old sports programmes, photographs, memorabilia)
• Items related to cinemas in Edinburgh/ film stars from the 1930s-70s (e.g. posters, magazines, photographs)
• Items related to music from the 1930s-70s (vinyl, photos, posters, magazines)
• 1950s, 1960s and 1970s items in general
• Items related to dance halls in Edinburgh
• Items related to shops and cafes in Edinburgh from the 1930s-70s
Please note, the items need to be reasonably small and transportable and in good condition. They also should not have any sharp edges or other parts that people could hurt themselves on.
If you have anything you think could be of use, please contact me: 0131529 6365 or email@example.com
Thank you for your help!
